Good day.

I've made calls from my IP desk phone using my TF phone number as the
outgoing CID for years. I would like to do the same from my (non-TF)
cellular phone when I'm away from the IP and TF phones.

Since the TF App is not programmed for making or receiving calls, is there
another App that would? I'm not interested in a VoIP App, but would like
an App that can use cellular minutes the same as the GV App can.

Thank you!
 
take a look at rebtel, they set outbound calls to your number for caller ID and offer free calls to US numbers

calls to many destinations though likely be identified at 'spam likely'
 
Thank you, robbyrobby.

I had a RebTel account years ago.

From what I remember, though, you would first call a local "patch" number
from whatever cell or "land line" number you signed-up with, then, you
would dial the final number you wanted to call. Hence, the outgoing CID
would be preserved.

If that's still the case, why not just call directly from the TF phone?

Anyways, just in case my memory failed me or things have changed, I'll take
another gander at RT.

Thank you, again.
 
Reactivated my RebTel account and added a free Unlimited US Plan.

Same difference, RebTel hasn't changed.

The outgoing CID is still tied to the cell phone you're calling from
(that has been previously registered with RT).

Found an App that actually does what I'm looking for: "SpoofCard."
Unfortunately, the per minute charge is high and, in the wrong hands, it
could be used to harass people or for criminal activity.

Google voice is looking better. However, my TF number is good through
2027 and has over 10,000 minutes left.

Will look next at SamSung two SIM phones (if they make them).

We will see.

Have you used this app? I've used Rebtel for international calls, but never tried the app. Thanks.
